    For all you extreme rightwing hatemonkeys, riddle me this: Why is it you claim the so-called "liberal" media is pro-Dem when all the evidence clearly points in the opposite direction? Exhibit A would be this ridiculous CPAC coverage. Multiple national and international media outlets have devoted hours and pages of coverage to what is essentially a gathering of the GOBP deathcult's most unhinged, irrational and bigoted supporters. The conference represents only a thin sliver of a America (mostly the angry, old, white racists), has little support among average Americans, and offers rehashed extreme rightwing talking points manure disguised red meat rhetoric for the low information voters.

    Now for the second puzzler for all you radical righties: Where is the equivalent example of the so-called "liberal" media going gaga over a gathering of liberals or progressives? Where are they getting coverage anywhere close to what these clowns are getting.

    I wonder how much money the koch brothers spent bribing these fools. If there is one thing the flip flopper isn't is conservative. He might be able to hide it now but wait till he comes out on top of the clown car and his old/new ideas go national.
